Ideas had to be generated regarding the best way
to reconfigure and modify the footprint for NGTC’s
classroom space. The engineering class visit allowed
students to take dimensions of the machine, learn
how it operated, determine what the limits were, and
develop an understanding for how to best adapt it to
their classroom environment.
Following a plan of action, the CNC router table
was ready to be disassembled and relocated. North-
cutt described the challenge of disassembling and
transporting the equipment as a “new experience for
some of the students who have never actually worked
on a piece of equipment.”
A benefit of this project was the opportunity for
students to put hands on the device in order to figure
out how to take it apart, both mechanically and elec-
trically. Great care during this step was crucial, as the
students would then need to reassemble and recon-
nect every component to make it operational again.
This required in-depth documentation of all of the
wiring and connections.
Once the CNC router table found its way to the
campus of North Georgia Technical College, the
The reconfigured CNC router will be involved in a variety
of projects at North Georgia Technical School including
manufacturing wood products and making signage.
